Home > Community Program > Cumberland Food Share

The Village of Cumberland’s Food Bank.

The Food Share includes a Food Shed and bi-weekly deliveries of Healthy Food Boxes to Cumberland residents facing food insecurity. Established in April 2020, the goal is to ensure that all Villagers have access to good fresh, food during the pandemic and beyond. Weird Church built and maintains the Food Shed, while CCSS coordinates and fundraises for the delivery of Healthy Food Boxes. Weird Church provides in kind use of facilities to operate the program.

If you need help:

  1. If you are currently unable to access food due to financial restraints, please fill out our FOOD ASSISTANCE REQUEST FORM.
  2. Stop by the Food Shed at 2688 Penrith Avenue and take home a few items.

How you can help:

  2. Donate non-perishable goods to the Food Shed. Drop off food items in the shed at 2688 Penrith Ave. Please do not drop off expired or opened food.
